Their plan is simple enough: they?ll drive into Vancouver early in the morning, have the procedure and be back by dinner without anyone the wiser.

Rather than travelling back to Hope, they decide to stay in town. Over the course of that day, they wander the city, meet old friends, make drastic decisions and force each other to admit that they want more from life. What began as an awkward errand blossoms into a romantic awakening that will change their lives forever and, ultimately, leave them with some very difficult decisions to make…
